A Great Big World: An Evening with Ian & Chad
The magical journey of A Great Big World began in the music practice rooms of NYU (New York University) where the two were attending college. In 2012, after a few twists and turns of fate, the friends formed A Great Big World and released a six-song EP funded by Kickstarter. Soon after, they released Say Something as their first official single in 2013. Its terse, tearful piano and Axels heavenly hypnotic vocals tugged on heartstrings, and struck a chord. 2015 saw the arrival of their second album When the Morning Comes, featuring singles Hold Each Other," which celebrates love of all kinds, and "Won't Stop Running," which was King's powerful response to his experiences living with multiple sclerosis. Axel and King are currently writing brand new music for release later this year.
